Stens vs. Walbro carbs

I'm looking at a walbro carb for my EBZ8000 and mowpart.com has 2 different manufacturers listed.

Walbro WYA-44-1 $57.81

Stens Oem Carburetor / Walbro Wya-44-1 $73.02


What is the primary difference between the two? Why is the Stens $17 more?

Stens doesn't make carbs. You can either buy the carb "direct" from Walbro or go through Stens to buy the same carb for $17 more. Or they might be having carbs built in China like most of the rest of their crap.

much better how? In what way?

And for future reference, how do you determine who manufactures a certain part on ebay when they use a generic pic with the Stens watermark on it?

Well it must be better, it costs more, so it must be better. I mean, after all, a MTD Lawn Tractor painted a certain shade of green with a symbol of a little animal on it brings in a lot more money on a sale with less complaining from the customer about price, than a MTD Lawn Tractor painted in the other MTD colors with the MTD labels.
